Summary of the Ofsted Report 2019

The full Ofsted Inspection Report explains how the four key aspects of Noah's Ark were rated.

Here are some extracts:

The preschool staff offer the children a vibrant and nurturing space to play and learn. Children are eager and excited to immerse themselves in the wonderful learning opportunities from the moment they arrive at the setting. Staff have formed excellent attachments with all the children to support them to feel safe and secure in their care. Children are enthusiastic learners and have extremely positive attitudes to learning. Leaders think carefully about their environment and organise resources at the children's height to enable children to make decisions in their play. Children show high levels of confidence and independence as they relish in the opportunity to carry out tasks. For example, all children have the opportunity to be the settings special helper for the day. Children show delight as they choose to play indoors or outdoors. Children laugh in excitement as they engage in garden games such as 'What's the time Mr Wolf'. Staff are passionate about developing children's knowledge and understanding of the world we live in. Staff work exceptionally hard to support all children to develop positive behaviours to enhance their future learning. All staff consistently embed clear boundaries for children. As a result, children's behaviour is exemplary. All staff have a strong understanding of their role to protect children from harm and attend regular safeguarding training. Staff use detailed risk assessments to ensure their environment is safe and secure and to minimise any potential hazards.



We are thrilled that Noah's Ark has received a glowing Ofsted report.

It is a great credit to the team and Helen Simpson, the leader. We are delighted to have such a well-regarded pre-school at the heart of the community in Weston and this recognition comes as no surprise as we know how much parents, families and the children themselves love and appreciate Noah's Ark.
